Ho-Ho the monkey and little Kai-Lan's iconic Good Morning Sun were also paper pieced from cutting files created from the coloring book images.

Francis Byrne's fun ocean shadowbox card I decided to add a shadowbox in my card too, where I placed Baby, Mommy, and Daddy Shark and friends. Seaweed and coral are from Cricut Life's A Beach cartridge.

Times New Roman font was used to spell "B-A-B-Y" on the front and baby's name, "A-R-I-A-N-A" on the back of the card. Panels for the blocks were cut from white card stock and run through a Cuttlebug heart embossing folder for texture. Tiny flowers to embellish the alphas were cut using a Punch Bunch mini flower punch and I used Ivory Seashell Nuvo Crystal drops for the flower centers.
The Blocks card easily fold flat for mailing and I added a sentiment to the bottom panel. There are several tutorials on this type of card online, I really liked this one by the Janie, the Craft Princess from Crafter's Castle blog because she explains the "mathematical formula" for the card template so you can enlarge or shrink the card size to your own personal preference.
